Ingredients

  • 2- 6 oz. swordfish steaks
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped mint
  • 3 cloves garlic minced

Instructions

  • Place swordfish steaks in a shallow dish, rub with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Combine light rum, lime juice, chopped mint, and garlic in a small bowl.
  • Pour marinade over the top of the swordfish steaks.
  • Put in refrigerator and let marinate for about 20 minutes, but be sure not to let it sit much longer or the lime juice may cook the fish.

  • Place swordfish steaks on grill and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, until swordfish is cooked through.
  • Sprinkle with additional mint and serve with lime wedges.
